At Adler Family Chiropractic, PC we are constantly seeking the best ways to assist our patients using natural, non-invasive methods of restoring their health. We are excited to offer state-of-the-art Cold Laser Therapy to our community.
The Summus Horizon Class IV Cold laser is a quantum leap in laser technology and has been designed and engineered using decades of sophisticated research and technology.
Proven to biostimulate tissue repair and growth, Class IV laser therapy is a non-surgical, drug-free treatment option designed to treat acute to chronic pain.
Specific red and near-infrared wavelengths induce a therapeutic effect within the body. Laser energy stimulates the healing process by accelerating blood flow, bringing water and other nutrients to the affected area.
Throughout treatment, metabolic activity stimulates at the cellular level, improving the transport of vital nutrients across the cell membrane, which increases the production of cellular energy (ATP).
This scientifically proven treatment method is used to decrease inflammation and the formation of scar tissue.
After evaluation to see if you are a candidate for laser therapy, your treatment will be scheduled and will begin as soon as possible.
Treatment times vary from 6-30 minutes and you can continue with normal activities both before and after treatment. We may ask you to bring loose-fitting clothing or wear a gown to allow access to tissues in need of cold laser therapy.
Summus Horizon Medical laser has been designed and researched to be an effective treatment option for a variety of acute and chronic conditions.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) is the application of red and near-infra-red light over injuries or lesions to improve wound and soft tissue healing, reduce inflammation and give relief for both acute and chronic pain.
The Summus Horizon Medical laser works by targeting four specific structures within the targeted tissues. These tissues are target simultaneously, utilizing four different wavelengths of laser light.
650 nanometers: Targets Superficial receptors to accelerate tissue healing, increase cellular regeneration, reduce the need of antibiotics, and drastically shorten healing time.
810 nanometers: Targets Mitochondria, the energy powerhouse of the cell. This drastically increases the conversion of O2 to ATP (the energy currency of the cell), accelerates cellular metabolism, stimulates the immune system, and penetrates deep within the target tissue.
915 nanometers: Targets Hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying molecule in the body. This serves to double Oxygen delivery to the target tissue, improves pain relief, and enhances healing effects.
980 nanometers: Targets Water in the blood which improves circulation, increases pain relief, decreases morbidity, and encourages faster recovery.
This technology has been in use in clinical practice for over a decade and with the introduction of the Summus Horizon Medical Laser, we are now able to see significant and fast results for a variety of acute and chronic issues.
